LINDGREN RETAINS GP PLACE

Monday October 30, 2017
INJURED Wolverhampton skipper Freddie Lindgren will have another chance to fight for the World Championship in the 2018 Grand Prix series.

The Swedish star was a title contender for much of the campaign and was right in the mix for a medal before seeing his season ended by a neck injury at the end of September.

Despite missing the final two rounds, he held onto his top eight spot with Martin Vaculik and the rest of the chasing pack failing to make up enough ground in Melbourne last weekend.

It means Lindgren will now be able to attempt to make up for his injury heartache next year without relying on a wildcard to preserve his Grand Prix status.

Meanwhile, Wolves asset Tai Woffinden secured a bronze medal after a second placed finish on the night in the final round in Australia on Saturday whilst wildcard Sam Masters scored two points.

And team boss Peter Adams has hailed the season as a major success for the Parrys International Wolves on the world stage.

Adams said: “I'm delighted Freddie has made the top eight as it underlines how well he was doing before his injury.

“It's also very pleasing for Tai to get the bronze medal, he was determined to do it.

“From a Wolverhampton point of view a successful season in the Grand Prix I would say.”

Finally, everyone connected with Wolverhampton Speedway would like to congratulate Jason Doyle after he secured his first World title on home shale.
